Greetings everyone! A new major update is now live on the server, bringing forth this year's Halloween Event. This is by far the largest Halloween event ever on the server before, with a massive new open-world dungeon zone, more than a dozen new quests, and more items than any previous event ever! Let's get into the update notes.
The Halloween Event is live from today until November 1st, giving you an entire month to obtain all the new exclusive rewards. As usual, these rewards can be obtained from playing the event and from the store. This time around there are also several cosmetics and end-game tiered items exclusively earned through completing event objectives.
Spending 69+ EUR in a single payment will unlock this brand-new Death Knight combat pet which has several custom abilities!
NEW ZONE: THE FALLEN KINGDOM OF NORTHRUMBIA 💀
A brand new event zone - larger than any previous event zone. Venture to the Fallen Kingdom of Northrumbia, a once flourishing and prosperous kingdom, which now lies in ruins as corruption has spread everywhere. Venture with fellow Vikings to conquer these lands, and learn the truth about the corruption before it spreads further. Special thanks to Arto for building the zone!
This zone features many new custom monsters for you to fight, including The Headless Horseman, which is this year's event boss. He will spawn in the zone every 4 hours. There is also a mini-boss that spawns randomly and awards all partakers with a large sum of money.
The zone can be accessed at any time by anyone and has several infinite grind mechanics allowing those who want to grind out all the exclusive event items at your own pace.
The Halloween zone also features a friendly Viking Village where you can interact with several NPCs selling various exclusive event items. Make sure to speak to all the NPCs to see what they are selling!
EVENT CURRENCY 🏆
The primary event currencies are Silver Coins and Gold Coins. These are not the same as the Summer Event ones, but the plan is for these Halloween Silver and Gold Coins to be the standard moving forward. This means if you have leftovers of these coins after Halloween is over, you can save them for future events.
NEW EVENT QUESTS 🗺️
A total of 13 new event quests have been added for this event. They range from simple quests where you have to break some Halloween-related blocks such as pumpkin and rooted dirt.
You will also find several quests taking place in the Halloween Zone, where you must hunt specific monsters and enemies.
You can check out the quests in-game by typing /quests and navigating into the new Event Quests category.
The Global Quest of this month is also Halloween-related, as the objective is to break Pumpkins!
TREASURE GOBLINS ⭐
Periodically, you will also see a broadcast in chat that a Treasure Goblin has been spotted in spawn. As their name reveals, slaying these sneaky goblins will bring you good fortune and treasure! They will award the players who find it first with silver and gold. Treasure Goblins appear at random times at random locations of spawn.
NEW REWARDS ⭐
Naturally, this Halloween Event also comes with dozens of new exclusive rewards you can earn. It is recommended you preview the items in full in-game on the server either by going to the crates area in spawn and inspecting the Halloween Crate, or by venturing to the Halloween Zone and interacting with all of the merchants.
